For some forty years the School has continued to use 
St. Mark's Chapel, at Bishop's University, and for a 
long time it has been more and more apparent that that 
very beautiful Chapel has become too small for the 
School, because of the increased number of boys, the 
larger Choir, and the more frequent and numerous 
visitors to our services. 

Work is now going forward to convert our former 
Assembly Hall, Gymnasium and Stage into a School 
Chapel. The architect is Mr. Henry Langston, an Old 
Boy of the School, and his sketch accompanying this 
article gives an impression of the proposed conversion. 
The plans include a new entrance staircase, and the 

Chapel will accommodate about five hundred people. At 
last the entire School, and Old Boys, parents and visitors, 
will be able to take part together in such events as the 
Thanksgiving and Carol Services. 

A new building, to house those aspects of the School's 
life and work that are being displaced by the Chapel, is 
being constructed on the fourth side of the Quadrangle, 
between the Administration Wing and the Rink. It will 
contain an assembly hall, a gymnasium, a large room and 
showers, and a stage with dressing rooms and workshop. 
This building will be connected to the Main Building 
by an overhead cloister, and by another passage to the 




On Friday evening, June 6th, Brigadier C. M. Drury, 
O.B.E., Old Boy and Director of the School, presented 
the Academic Prizes of 1957, a list of which will be found 
elsewhere in this issue of the Magazine. 

On this occasion Brigadier Drury announced the plans 
for the expansion of the School's facilities, including the 
Chapel, Assembly Hall, Gymnasium, Stage, Locker 
Rooms, another House, and stated that a campaign 
would be launched with objective of raising $500,000 
among Old Boys, parents of boys, and friends of the 
School, and that a substantial sum had already been 
contributed towards this total. 

Honorary Chairman of the Campaign Committee is 
T. H. P. Molson, Esq., Brigadier Drury is Chairman, and 
Alfred Penhale, Esq. is Deputy. Contributions payable 
to the B.C.S. Memorial Fund, may be sent to any of the 
above, or directly to the Headmaster at the School.

The outstanding contribution to the beauty of our 
services this year has been the gift of an electronic organ. 
This fine instrument, given by his family in memory of 
Mr. T. C. Brainerd, of Montreal has been in use at all 
our daily services in the Assembly Hall. It is made by 
the Hallman Company of Waterloo, Ontario, who have 
succeeded in producing an electronic organ which comes 
very close to the tone of a pipe organ, and from our 
point of view (compelled as we are to use the Assembly 
Hall for a great variety of activities) it possesses the 
great advantage of being portable. So we have been 
able to move the speakers and use it at its best not only 
for daily prayers but also for the choir practices, the 
Carol Service, and all the Mikado rehearsals and per- 
formances. Not a day has passed when the organ has not 
been used, and we are full of gratitude for this generous 

Because of the organ we were able to make a break 
with tradition and hold the Carol Service in the Assembly 
Hall. This proved a great success. It enabled over five 

hundred people to be present and after Miss Watson 
and her helpers had been busy decorating with trees and 
branches and coloured lights, we were able to hold the 
most impressive service of the year. 

Mention of the organ naturally leads one to thank 
Mr. Donald Patnqum, our organist, for his continued 
interest and help. For five years he has played at prayers 
and services, but because of the increasing quantity of 
work which now falls upon the School organist, and the 
nearness of his final exams at Bishop's University, he is 
relinquishing the post m June. He has earned the highest 
praise for his playing from many people and we should 
like to thank him warmly for his enthusiastic help. His 
place will be taken next September by Mrs. Robert Bell. 

Our Head Server this year was Michael Byers, and 
he was assisted by Nicholas Brown, Robin Pitcher, and 
Brian Vintcent, and once again we should like to thank 
Miss M. Reyner for looking after the choir robes so 


This year the choir has been "dogged" by bad luck. It 
should have been a vintage year, but we got off to a bad 
start with the 'flu epidemic, and no Thanksgiving Service. 
Then we accepted an invitation to sing evensong at Bury, 
but only a quarter of the choir arrived, the rest being 
"ditched" by ice and snow. Again we set out, this time 
to Drummondville, but a power cut forced us to sing 
without the organ. Finally we went to St. James the 
Apostle (Montreal) on May 11th, where half the soloists 
went sick. 

In spite of all these misfortunes some fine services 
were sung, notably the Carol Service, and Richard 
Brown in particular has sung several outstanding treble 

A great deal of choir time was taken up, of course, 
with Mikado rehearsals, and with the first'dass singing 
lessons which Mr. Jan Simons of Montreal has given 
throughout the year. It must be rare for a school choir 
to have the chance of tuition from a professional singer 
of top rank, and several boys have developed fine resonant 
voices as a result. 

We shall greatly miss Peter Mitchell who has led the 
altos for several years, and also Michael Alexander the 
Librarian. Visitors to the School will notice the new 
red folders for our music, and the hymn-books engraved 
with the School Crest. 

Our thanks are due, too, to Mr. Seager and Mr. 
Wilson for the help they have given at all times. 

Finally may I draw the attention of trebles m our 
choir to two things. This year I have had to refuse an 
invitation to send a chorister to sing m London, England, 
m August, because no suitable boy was making the 
journey. Last year Richard Brown attended St. Paul's 
Choir School for two weeks under a similar invitation. I 
hope any eligible boy will notify me in good time if he 
hopes to be in England next summer. 

Secondly, there is a very fine choir course at Camp 
Hyanto m Ontario, run by George Maybee, the organist 
of Kingston Cathedral. The charge for one week (the 
first m July) is only $15. It is an enjoyable combination 
of choir and camping holiday culminating in a service 
at St. George's Cathedral, Kingston on the Sunday 
evening. I can highly recommend it. 




The following were members of the School choir: — 

Prep Trebles: Abbott I, Anido I, Anido II, Blakely II,

This year the Debating Society enjoyed an unusually 
high standard of speaking. Again, because of our large 
membership, the society was divided into Senior and 
Junior sections. The total membership, composed 
entirely of speaking members, was 80. An effort was 
made this year to encourage the participation of all 
attending members in the debates. The society opened 
early in January with its traditional opening Hat Night. 
Good things were augured by the keen interest shown at 
this first meeting. 

Officers for the year were: N. Webster, President; 
M. Byers, Vice-President; C. Moseley, Senior Treasurer; 
P. Cumyn and M. Ayre, Senior Secretaries; J. Clarke, 
Junior Secretary. 


The Junior House, surviving the hazard of debating 
evening hockey games, trips, etc., produced several 
speakers of merit. It is hoped they will continue to shine 
next year. 

Debates held were : "Country life possesses more 
advantages than does city life"; the Speakers were 
Prescott, McEntyre, McGee and Clarke for the affirm' 
ative, and Hart II, Baillie II, Patriquin and Monk for 
the negative; the motion lost. "Newspapers possess 
more advantages as a mass medium than do radios"; the 
Speakers were Shaughnessy, Fletcher, Kenny and Pidcock 
for the affirmative and Lockwood, Rogers, McLernon II 
and Webster II for the negative; the motion, though 
ably defended, was again lost. 


Merely to give the required run-down on the debates 
themselves would be to cheat the Senior House of some 
well-deserved credit. While the bill speeches were not 
unduly outstanding, participation by members from the 
floor was both interesting and of a high standard. 

The first debate in the Senior House was, "Great 
Britain exerts a greater influence upon Canada than does 
the U.S." The Speakers were McLernon I, Hart I, 
Baillie I and Vintcent for the affirmative, and Bell, 
Wanklyn, Cumyn and Miller for the negative; the 
motion was carried by a full house, whose sympathies, 
perhaps surprisingly, lay with the mother country. 

"The Society denounces Tradition," the second 
debate, was convened by means of a radically new notice, 
and those attending were treated to a radically new 
approach to the subject. The Speakers were Moseley, 
Redpath, Ayre and Watson for the affirmative, and 
Byers, Sise, Mongeau and Owen for the negative. It 
was hardly surprising after the result of the first debate 
that this motion was defeated. 

A highlight in this year's affairs was reached when 
Colin Moseley won the Provincial Rotary Club Public 
Speaking Contest. Moseley, who reached the semi-final 
last year, took the highest honours this year, the first 
B.C.S. boy to do so in the past decade. 

There were two meetings for the complete society. 
The first was Hat Night. The other was a debate to 
pick two members to represent the School in the Triangle 
debate at L.C.C. against Ashbury. The subject was, 
"The present policy of the Canadian Government in 
diverting purchase of goods produced in the U.S. to 
goods produced in the U.K. is a sound one." This 
meeting turned out to be the year's best, as almost 
everyone present spoke, and the debate was still going 
strong when called because of time. Webster I and Miller 
were chosen to represent the School, but lost a very 
close decision to Ashbury. 

J. Redpath was chosen to go to the Model U.N. at 
Plymouth, N.H., and acted as a representative of the 
United Kingdom. 

In closing we would like to thank Mr. Doheny, who, 
remaining in his advisory position and giving advice on 
many aspects of debating, helped to complement a most 
successful year. 

N. Webster, (Form M VI) 


by C. G. M. Gner 

The Editors are indebted to Col. Grier, former Head- 
master of the School, for the following review of this year's 
Gilbert & Sullivan production. 

THE WEEKEND OF April 17-19 was, for me, an 
anniversary. It was twenty years almost to the day since a 
Gilbert and Sullivan opera had been first produced on 
the B.C.S. stage. Designed by Bob Montgomery with 
the assistance of a New York architect, the first profes- 
sional stage to be built in a Canadian school had just 
been completed. It had the only permanent cyclorama 
in any Canadian Little Theatre. We were proud of it — 
eye, cat-walk, back-bay, dressing rooms and all. 

I called myself "producer" in those days, but I was 
merely part of a team which depended for its success on 
the musical genius of "Pop" Page, headmaster of the 
Prep, the skill and spirit of the cast and the assistance of 
about three-quarters of the school population. We were 
all in it. It was a strange new industry which killed the 
tedium of bad weather, taxed the capacity of the infirmary 
with temperamental prima donnas and gave the head- 
master — whose time always hung heavily on his hand — 
something to do. It revealed masters who were electrical 
experts and others whose talent for carpentry had 
hitherto been wasted. It exposed the presence of masters' 
wives who were cosmeticians, or couturieres, or choreo- 
graphers, or all three. Overnight, backward boys became 
forward ticket salesmen. In the end, the team could 
produce a show — if the hessian curtain worked and 
Southern Canada did not cut off the power. 

In April I came, I saw, and I was conquered. I can 
give none of your impudent off-hand nods to The Mikado 
of 1958 for it deserves no less than the deference due to 
a production of high degree. It is true that I missed the 
voluptuous plush-covered seats (purchased for a few 
dollars from a dismantled Sherbrooke theatre and lugged 
painfully up to the gallery when the show was over) : I 
missed the crowds of parents. All else was on the credit 
side. I managed to sit where I had always sat (for 
B.C.S. casts can be relied upon to dispense with their 
producers — so long as they are not also conductors), 
about fifth row centre. There I assumed, with some 
difficulty, a complete neutrality of mind, and waited for 
my impressions. 

What were they? I shall give you only two, for I 
lost track somewhere between the third and fourth. The 
first was that there were still strong links with the past, 
and the second that this was going to be a good show. 
As for the former, I observed that Mrs. Bell was at the 
organ and that Mr. Moffat, formely a business manager, 
was now a First Violin. On the programme was the 
name of Mr. Evans — his flair for feminine make-up now 
applied to the manufacture of sets and properties. That 
supremely important detail, the costumes; were they 
still devised (that is the word, I think), measured, cut 
and sewn at B.C.S. or had they been left in their entirety 
to Malabar? See how the Fates their gifts allot: except 
for the meretricious few, they were the work of the 
Matron, Miss Watson. And Mr. Seager? Was he not, as 
a Fifth Former, in the Chorus of Pirates? Finally, when 
the curtain revealed the mise en scene, I saw Emilien 
Dussault — not in person, for our directors have always 
been agressive about clearing stage and wings, but in 
custom-built accessories to the set. All these tokens of 
the independence and spontaneity of B.C.S. productions 
were reassuring. 

The Mi\ado is not an easy play to put on; it ranks 
about fifth in order of difficulty among the more popular 
G & S operas. I was always afraid to attempt it in the 
old days. I thought that if the cast tried to play it 
straight — as they must do — the pace would be lost. I 
thought that if I succeeded in convincing the principals 
that the merit of the production depended on the auto- 
cratic impressiveness of the Mikado, the tragic defeat 
of Katisha and the pathetic sincerity of Ko-Ko, these 
principals would freeze. Or, if I did not succeed in con- 
vincing them, they would ham it. I evidently need not 
have worried. The Mikado, Katisha and Ko-Ko were 
of the absurd plot, but not in it : the supporting principals 
were good, the choruses were alert, movement was 
adequate and the spectacle was bright. In short, it was 
showmanship of a high order. 

No better "back-drop" than Peter Lock's Japanese 
landscape has graced the surface of the cyclorama. It 
will be spared, I hope, the ignominy of obliteration 
below a coat of light blue paint before the wreckers 
cart the eye off to parts unkown. It will stay long enough, 
perhaps, to impress the architect of the day — himself 
an old B.C.S. trouper — with the value to the modern 
theatre of the idea of distance conveyed by a spacious 
cyclorama that does not flap about. Lock's impressionistic 
touches painted on the flats were exactly right, and so 
were the authentic arch (which framed an upstage centre 
entrance in Act I and supplied an ingenious solution of 
an old problem) and the transverse bridge that added 
enormously to the build-up for the entry of the Mikado 
in Act II. 



George Wilson's grouping of his tableaux was excellent. 
The sopranos, once on stage, tended to be a trifle grim 
and immobile, but they always arrived on the dot, thawed 
out as the pace increased and were fully in the swing of 
things before they disappeared. The principals knew their 
business; they kept the ball in the air; everything they 
had to say came across the footlights. Now and then 
there was tendency to separate a monologue from the 
narrative and to fire it point blank at the audience, but 
only now and then. 

The Rev. H. Foster, producer and conductor, brought 
out a quality of diction, tone and volume from his singers 
that would have gladdened the heart of Mr. Page. Ts 
were heard as T's (and not as D's); vowels were round; 
the madrigals (especially on the first night) were superb; 
Yum-Yum's "The Moon and I" was lovely; the crescen- 
dos of the chorus were clear and true. The principals, 
as they sang alone or m small groups, generally stood too 
close to the conductor for the comfort of the audience 
and were so intent on the movement of his arm and hand 
that their eyes were motionless and downcast instead of 
being lively and expressive. Ko-Ko and Katisha broke 
loose in their "Deny down derry" — one reason for the 
huge success of the song. 

Discretion is the better part of valour when attempting 
to write about principal actors, and, like the amateur 
who reported that "all rowed fast but none so fast as 
stroke," I am no expert in these matters. Qua acting, I 
liked best Pooh-Bah (R. Cruikshank), Katisha (P. Mitchell) 
and Ko-Ko (B. Vmtcent). Cruikshank enjoyed his con- 
descending dignity and his own resonant delivery with- 
out burlesquing his part. Mitchell's unusual voice and 

his dramatic competence made him quite the most out- 
standing middle-aged contralto that I have seen in any 
school G & S— anywhere. Vmtcent's was the most 
difficult role and, on the whole, he filled it well. But he 
was not always the friendly, likable little man "genuinely 
in love with Yum-Yum, m great awe of the Mikado, and 
scared to death of Katisha." On the contrary, he was 
seldom dazed or dazzled, as he should have been. 

As singers, I liked Yum-Yum (R. Brown), Nanki- 
Pooh (G. MacKenzie), the Mikado (J. Alexander), and 
Ti-Shoo (M. Rowat). Rowat can congratulate himself 
on successfully introducing a new Gilbertian character, 
if not a new singing part. The name Ti-Shoo suggests 
some local French influence or an impending collaboration 
between the producer and Gratien Gelmas, but Rowat's 
singing indicates that it was a good idea to give Ko-Ko 
four wards instead of three. I hope that there will be 
another opera before Brown becomes a tenor or bass and 
while he is adding to his undoubted talents as a soubrette. 
MacKenzie's voice reminded me of Tony Abbott s 
(Pirates, Iolanthe)— and that is praise. The Mikado must 
have a good bass-baritone: Alexander has a good bass- 
baritone. Finally, there should be a special word for G. 
Ross's flawless Pitti-Sing and G. Mills's enterprising 
Peep-Bo. And, indeed, a special word for Mr. Forster, 
Mr. Wilson, and all their directors, managers, stage hands, 
electricians, property men, prompters, salesmen, ushers, 
gentlemen and ladies of the orchestra, accountants, and 
members of the cast who gave a striking corporate de- 
monstration of the School's inclination to be content with 
nothing short of the best.

The Rev, H. Forster and Mr. George Wilson. 



The Camera Club under the most able direction of 
Mr. Moffat as Chairman, R. Pitcher as President, and 
G. Gay as Secretary-Treasurer, had a very hard working 
and fruitful year. 

Two first class members, C. Ross and R. Saykaly, 
were appointed at the beginning of the year because of 
the excellent work they had been doing in the past. 

An exhibition of pictures taken during the summer 
by members was held at the end of the first term. G Gay 
came out on top with a first class showing of excellent 

Several improvements were made in the club during 
the year. In the Christmas holidays the School constructed 
and donated the counter tables which now line the walls 
of the club. These greatly improved the club's working 
facilities. The donation of the tables gave the necessary 

incentive to the twenty members to start on an early 
spring cleaning, and in the middle of the second term 
they painted the darkroom, a job which had not been 
done for five years. 

A new lens was purchased for one of the club's three 
enlargers with funds derived from profits of sales and 
members' fees. 

The club would like to express its thanks to Dupont 
Co. Ltd., of Toronto, for their generous gifts of enlarging 

It is hoped that a second and superior exhibition of 
work will take place at the end of May. On the whole, 
the work done in the Camera Club this year has been 
of very high calibre, but the amount of time spent by 
members in the club was curtailed because of the many 
other school activities.

The French Club again had a successful year, although 
it could not meet as often as was wished because of 
other activities. There was an excellent turnout for the 
club, which had more members than in recent years. 
Mr. Hall, Mr. Lock, Mr. Owen, and Mr. Seager again 
gave up their time to organize the club and the members 
extend their thanks. 

The club consisted of the following members: Pitcher, 
Vmtcent and Nesbitt I from Form VII; Turgeon, Javitch, 
Le Gallais and Setlakwe from Form V; Hanna and Lapierre 
from Form IV; Harris, Pick, Carter, Sharp II, Khazzam 
III, MacDonald, Masterson and Stovel from Form III. 

The meetings of the club were spent discussing 
interesting pictures and recording speech in French, 

watching the French news on television, and playing a 
variety games to improve vocabulary and give the 
members a chance to say something in French. 

The final meeting of the year was held at Mr. Hall's 
house where Mrs. Hall had prevously prepared some 
delicious refreshments. These, as well as Mr. Seager's 
tape recorder, by means of which everyone's conversation 
in French could be played back, and the program which 
Marc Turgeon and Daniel Javitch had laid out for the 
evening, all contributed to make it a very enjoyable one. 
Mr. Hall ended the meeting by expressing his thanks 
and the hope that the French Club might carry on as 
successfully next year — a hope shared by all present. 


This was the second year m which Biology was taken 
as a subject at this School. During the year, certain 
advances were taken in furthering the knowledge of all 
boys who have an interest in Biology. Bishop's University 
did much in this respect throughout the year, and the 
Biology Club at B.C.S. was organized under the leader- 
ship of Mr. A. C. Campbell. 

A lecture took place at Bishop's University on January 
30th, which included slides by Mr. S. Lemieux on "A 
Summer on Bylot Island with the Greater Snow Geese." 
April 19th featured an "Annual Bird and Wildlife 
Review," by Donald C. MacMillan, a prominent Artie 
explorer. With an inspiring lecture and an excellent 
movie, Mr. MacMillan presented his latest Arctic voyage. 

On March 14th Bishop's University itself presented an 
amazing exhibition on freshwater life. Many people, 
including some from Montreal, attended the exhibition. 
It was a treat for all who went. 

Apart from these events, the boys themselves provided 
many activities for their own interests. These came in 
the form of expeditions to the School woods and various 
experiments in the School laboratory. A collection of 
wild flowers was made in the School herbarium. 

On April 27th, Mr. Campbell and several boys went 
with Dr. Langford of the University on an expedition. 

This year was an exceedingly interesting and instruc- 
tive one for all those belonging to the Biology Club.

As""last year, it was decided that the Players' Club 
should try and keep going in spite of the concentration of 
effort and attention upon Gilbert and Sullivan. Because of 
the limits on available time and the difficulties in the 
way of using the school stage, we decided we should 
have to find a short play with a small cast and an easy 
set and that we should have to draw the whole cast from 
the same House so we could do most of our rehearsing 
in the evenings after prep. After a great deal of reading 
through plays, some interesting and some boring, we 
decided to perform Eros at Brea\fast, a one-act comedy 
by the Canadian writer, Robertson Davies. 

For the production, we used the simplest possible set, 
a backdrop curtain and the minimum of furniture; we 
borrowed Mr. Forster's tape recorder for the background 
music and imported G. Glass from the Prep School to 
record the girl-friend's voice. Once again we raided the 
Q.M. Stores for our costumes and decorated the uniforms 
with brightly coloured collars, cuffs and sashes. Miss 
Watson made a magnificent cloak for the Envoy from 
the Heart. 

Although we were able to get on stage for a few 
rehearsals, the spreading Mikado scenery made a perform- 
ance impossible and the school as a whole never did see 
the play. However, on March 9th we were invited over 
to King's Hall, arrived with car loads of equipment, and 
performed there. We all enjoyed ourselves enormously 
and we hope that Compton were not bored. 

After the Mi\ado, we held one or two more rehearsals 
to remind ourselves what the play was about, and on 
May 3rd entered the play in the Sherbrooke Youth 
Festival m competition with King's Hall, Bury, and 
Drummondville. Mrs. Filmore Sadler, the Adjudicator, 
awarded us first prize. Her written report on the play 
is quoted below : 

"The winning play was an excellent production of a 
very difficult play. 

"The music at the start was good— it immediately 
gripped our attention. The opening scene was very good, 
and Chremes' speech to the audience was exactly the 
right approach. All the characters had a clear under- 
standing of their roles, and each scene built up to its 
climax very well. The music and sound effects were right 
on the button, and the costumes were imaginative and 

"This play had been well rehearsed, and each player 
was sure of his lines and moves. They extracted most 
of the humour from this very funny play. I would suggest 
that the drinking scene be tidied up so that it does not 
blur the splendid ending. 

"This play was produced and acted in a professional 
manner — with taste, assurance and a fine sense of pace." 

The members of the cast were: Jonathan Meakins, 
Colin Moseley, John McLernon, Roger Bell, and 
Alexander Kyrtsis. Production staff: Deane Nesbitt, Ted 
Hawken and Peter Gillespie.

Because of the flu epidemic in the first term, the 
annual excitement of the Tea Dance had to be cancelled. 
Although the girls at Compon and the boys here always 
seem to dread this dance in anticipation, they do manage 
to enjoy it when it comes, and it was missed. 

The Formal at Compton was a reality this year 
although it came much later than usual. The girls did an 
excellent job of transforming their gym into a Ball Room, 
and once again made us feel the inadequacy of our own 
attempts at decorating. They took the Hanging Gardens 
of Babylon as their motif, hung streamers across the 

ceiling and covered the walls with large paper flowers, 
most of which managed to find their way to B.C.S. The 
atmosphere was unusually relaxed, and having gone 
through the whole interminable length of the Michaelmas 
term without any dance at all, everyone had a most 
enjoyable evening. 

The B.C.S. Invitation Dance in the third term followed 
the pattern of last year's and was a great success. It is 
hoped that, now we have had no fewer than two suc- 
cessive Invitation Dances, the first two terms may be 
able to profit from this example in the third.

This year marked the completion by No. 2 Bishop's 
College School Cadet Corps of ninety-seven years of 
continuous service, and was outstanding in view of the 
many successes in new fields. Following the start made 
last year, the syllabus was extended still further 
without sacrificing traditional high standards of smartness 
and drill. 

The Corps was commanded by Cadet Major M. Byers, 
with Cadet Captain G. Johnston as second-in-command 
and Cadet C.S.M. W. Sewell as Company Sergeant- 
Major. The Chief Instructor, Captain S. F. Abbott, was 
once again assisted by Lieutenant R. J. E. Greaves and 
Mr. J. G. Patriquin. 

For the first time, special cadet instructors were 
appointed with responsibility for teaching the funda- 
mentals of military training to the Corps. The weekly 
training programme provided for classes in these subjects, 
gave each platoon a weekly drill period, and allowed for 
platoon shooting. The cadet instructors were : S/Sgt. 
A. Kyrtsis and Sgt. D. Bruce (Map Reading); Sgt. 
N. Webster (Weapon Training); S/Sgt. F. Baillie and 
Sgt. M. Ayre (Tactical Training). Periodic tests were 
given in these subjects and the results counted towards 
the Platoon Competition. 

special Guard commanded by Lt. Alexander was 
chosen in the Lent Term by Captain Abott, who 
trained it m the difficult procedure of the Funeral Service, 
which was demonstrated at the Annual Inspection. 

Great credit is due to Mr. Patriquin, who, assisted 
by Range Sergeants B. Vmtcent and J. Johnson, brought 
the school's shooting to a higher level than ever before. 
The whole school passed the annual qualification, with 
73 first classes and 74 marksmen. In addition to this 
the school won its first Dominion of Canada Rifle Associa- 
tion recreational shooting badges. Cpl. Meakms and 
Cadets Cruikshank, Fowler, Lewis, Paetow and Thomson 
qualified for First Class Badges; Sgt. J. Johnson and 
Cpl. D. Buntain qualified as Marksmen; and Cadet 
W. Pilot qualified as a Distinguished Marksman with 
ten targets of 97% or better. 

The Cadet Corps scored another important first by 
putting seven Cadet N.C.O's. in a special course under 
Lieutenant Greaves to tram for the Military Master 
Cadet Examination. All seven candidates were above the 
pass mark of 75%, and three of them scored over 90%. 
This was a considerable achievement in view of the small 
number of Master Cadets at present m the Province 
The successful candidates in order of merit were Sgt N 





Webster, S/Sgt. A. Kyrtsis, Sgt. J. Redpath, Sgt. M. 
Ayre, Sgt. D. Langley, S/Sgt. F. Baillie, Sgt. D. Bruce. 

The Band, under the command of W.O. 1 J. McLernon, 
continued to be the pride of the Company by virtue of 
an all-round display of efficiency and keenness, and was 
awarded the Corps Shield for Smart Appearance and 
Corps Initiative. 

The Platoon Competition ended its fourth year; this 
competition is intended to stimulate high standards of 
smartness and efficiency in drill, shooting, appearance 
and military training. Platoon rivalry as usual ran high, 
and the competition was won by No. 2 Platoon under 
Lt. P. McLagan and Sgt. J. Redpath. No. 1 Platoon was 
commanded by Lt. J. Alexander with Sgt. D. Coburn; 
No. 3 Platoon, by Lt. P. Mitchell with Sgt. M. Alexander. 

In addition to its routine training, the Corps as usual 
sent a Guard to take part in the Remembrance Day Ser- 
vices at the Lennoxville Cenotaph. 

The Annual Inspection was held on May 16th. For 
the first time in many years bad weather forced the 
parade to be held inside and the Company formed up 
in the Rink. Circumstances forced a drastic revision of 
the planned programme; the march past in line and the 

gym and training demonstrations had to be cancelled. 
However, the Company marched past in column of 
route and advanced in review order; the Band gave a 
very competent performance; and the Guard gave their 
demonstration in impressive style. The success with 
which those who had to give orders succeeded in impro- 
vising in the confined space available was a great tribute 
to their initiative and ability to act in an emergency, and 
this compensated to a great extent for the loss of the full 

The reviewing officer was Lt. Col. S. V. Radley- 
Walters, D.S.O., M.C., CD., commanding officer of the 
l/8th Canadian Hussars (Princess Louise's), an Old Boy 
of the school. Apart from those already mentioned, 
awards were presented as follows: the Best Recruit, 
Cadet W. Jones; the Best Cadet, Cadet C. Coleman; the 
Most Efficient N.C.O. (double award) C.Q.M.S. R. 
Pitcher and Sgt. M. Alexander; the Strathcona Trust 
Medal for the Best Cadet Irrespective of Rank, Lt. J. 

At the time of writing, all that remains of the Cadet 
Corps year is for a Special Platoon to participate in the 
Black Watch Church Parade in Montreal on May 24th.

The following boys were appointed School Librarians for 
this school year: Pitcher, Mejia, Gillespie I, Nesbitt I, 
Vodstrcil. Gillespie replaced Pitcher when he became a 
head-boy, thus keeping the number to four. Two boys 
are on duty for a week at a time and have the privilege 
of doing 'Prep' in the library. 

A generous and valuable gift of some fifty-six volumes, 
including the complete works of Shaw and the Oxford 
Junior Encyclopedia, was received from an Old Boy, 
L. de Rothschild. Other additions in Science, History,' 
Art and Fiction were purchased during the year as well 
as a number of classical selections for the Record Library.

Starting the 1957 season with only five former first 
team colours, Mr. Abbott had the difficult task of digging 
deep into the School to find potential players, and then 
mould them into a sound well co-ordinated football team. 
This he was able to do in no uncertain terms, but, 
unfortunately, our victory pattern was somewhat clouded 
by the wave of Asian Flu which struck us such a dev- 
stating blow in the heart of the season. 

Notwithstanding the rude interruption during the 
autumn we had a most successful team, in that the boys 
showed desire and courage in every match, and the 
record of three wins and two losses bears this out. This 
year we played Ashbury m only one game rather than 
our usual two games total point series. In a splendid 
display of defensive football by both teams, we again, 
sadly enough, dropped the B.C.S. Old Boys' Trophy by 
the rather close margin of 7-0. On the brighter side, the 
team gained two victories from a very spirited and plucky 

Stanstead XII who undoubtedly will be a formidable foe 
in the near future. Our annual fixture with L C C was 
our final effort of the season, and certainly this game will 
go down ,n the record book as one of the finest played 
between the two schools. After a very seesaw battle 
Lower Canada was able to wrest the Shirley Russel 
Trophy away from us for the first time m seven years 
by the score of 6-0. 

The hard driving performance of the backfield the firm 
tackling of our ends and middles, and, generally, the solid 
charging of the line are the praiseworthy factors of the 
57 team Too much credit could not be given to Mr 
Abbott for his untiring efforts and many hours of toil 
each day-working on new systems of plays, developing 
the blocking and tackling, in every way educating the 
players in the fundamentals of the game, and the intrinsic 
values of good sportsmanship.

For the third time in fourteen years, our first hockey 
team lost the A.O.B.A. Trophy, to a very good L.C.C. 
team. Our team had its strengths, but it lacked consis- 
tency. There were no misconduct penalties, but too 
many chippy minors; a fair number of sharp scorers, but 
far too few who were willing to turn and check back 
effectively. Some games proved that we had a team of 
high potential calibre, but it was one that blew hot and 
cold, apparently according to the prevailing mood 
(horrible word!). 

A serious loss to the team was the forced withdrawal 
of the Captain, Peter Mitchell, whose play was as 
inspirational as that which won him the Gerald M. 
Wiggett Memorial Trophy in 1957. Michael Byers, 

Wiggett Trophy winner this year, stepped into his 
niche in the School's hall of fame with a courageous and 
intelligent effort that became more effective with each and 
every contest. Goalkeeping had its problems, too, and 
one of the brightest aspects of the season was the way 
in which Eberts, handicapped by glasses, toiled at the job, 
won it, and sustained his efforts until the final whistle. 

The 1959 team will start from stratch. There will be 
nearly a wholesale change of players, and those returning 
should be both "hungry" and experienced. The new- 
comers, if they give full cooperation, if they are wholly 
team-minded, if they are sturdily self-controlled, may well 
combine with the veterans to give us, once more, a team 
to warm the hearts of our constituency.

Two Eastern Townships titles in Bantam and Pee-Wee 
sections, and a finalist in the Midget division marked the 
competitive success of our hockey farmhands in 1958. 
Bantams won the Townships championship handily, and 
matched their strength against Montreal Rosemount in 
the Three Rivers playoffs. Iroquois, a scrappy little team, 
bowled over St. Pats, Sherbrooke City Champions, and 
won a close final from Ayers Cliff, to regain the champion- 
ship in the Pee-Wee division. A sturdy, clean and co-opera- 
tive Abenaki club took first honours in the Sherbrooke 
High School section, and was eliminated by Windsor, 
which went on to a very close Provincial final. Perhaps 
those successes should be mentioned first; in sport, the 
winners hit the headlines. On the other hand, our 
greatest success in Minor Hockey is often of the type 
that can be appreciated mostly by those who take an 
active part in it. It was a pleasant surprise to hear the 
District Convenor pay tribute in the annual meeting to 
the spirit of our second-running minor teams, by name, 
the Mohawks, the Hurons and the MicMacs. One 
wished that he might have seen the renamed Orphans, 
now Bisons, with their vastly improved enthusiasm and

effectiveness, or a Mohawk team with nine ailing players 
who refused reinforcements and battled an all-star visiting 
team to the final bell in an exhibition game. It was an 
exhibition — of all the best that B.C.S. hockey represents. 

There was again that. good fellowship evident in our 
outside games; several coaches, told us that their boys 
preferred to play at the School rather that at any other 
rink. The spectacle of handshaking by dripping, tired 
boys, victors and vanquished, never fails to restore an 
enthusiasm that may flag, temporarily. 

As one looked at the inner part of the picture, it was 
thrilling, again, to see boys grow in stature through 
responsibility and unselfish contribution to the success 
of their team; to watch a player take his bumps in good 
part and refuse to blow off; to cheer heartily when the 
steady journeyman finally got his goal because he^was 
in the right place at the right time; and, especially this 
season, to shiver, and sweat with the volunteer goalies 
who strapped on the shackling pads of the trade, forgot, 
for the game, the free-swinging activity of their chosen 
positions, and made our competition, as tradition decrees, 
worthy of our School colours.

This year the skiing conditions were more favourable 
than last year. Both Hillcrest and the cross-country 
course were in full use almost immediately following 
the Christmas holidays. This provided extra practice 
which helped our team to gain victories over Ashbury 
and L.C.C, our closest contenders, later in the season. 
Mr. Scott Griffin coached the First Team for the first 
time, while Mr. Lock acted as Manager. 

This year's victorious team consisted of Mongeau 
(Captain), MacKenrie, Shearer, Nesbitt II, Cruikshank, 
and Coolican. 

On February 14th, the ski-team went to Mont 
Tremblant, accompanied by Mr. Griffin and Mr. Lock, 
for the annual Triangle Meet with Ashbury and L.C.C. 
The ski conditions were perfect, this making good 
courses possible in the cross-country, the downhill, and 

the slalom. The slalom was won by MacKenye, the down 
hill by Shearer, and the cross-country by Nesbitt II 
MacKensie won the Price Trophy. The team also gained 
the Cochand Trophy, L.C.C. placing second, and 
Ashbury third. 

The next meet was held at St. Sauveur, with the Red 
Birds Ski Club as host. Owing to extensive teamwork 
B.C.S., managed to place first over eleven other schools' 
Ashbury and L.C.C. followed, taking second and third 
places respectively. MacKenrie placed second, Shearer 
sixth, Mongeau ninth, and Cruikshank tenth in a field 
or sixty-five entries. 

First Team Colours were awarded this year to 
Mongeau (Captain), Cruikshank, MacKenye, Nesbitt II 
and Shearer. '

A Junior Team was formed again this year, coached 
by Mr. Lock. The skiers were Goolican (Captain), 
Blakely, von Colditz II, Goodfellow, Harris, and Norton. 

On March 1st and 2nd, a five-school junior meet was 
held at St. Marguerite, and our Junior Team, after much 
practice, headed North. As usual, the conditions were 

superb. There was a cross-country, a downhill, and a 
slalom race. In the slalom, Coolican came third, and 
Goodfellow came fourth in the downhill. In the final 
team standings, L.G.C. was first, Ashbury second, and 
B.C.S. third. Coolican placed third in the individual 

R. Hart, (Form M VI) 


Mike Alexander of Smith House captured the Boswell 
Trophy by covering the A X A mile course in twenty- 
nine minutes, forty-eight seconds, the record time 
being 27:53. D. McNeill and D. Khazxam came in a 
close second and third. This year Smith House retained 
the senior team shield. The victorious squad consisted of 
Alexander I, Khazzam I, Rowat I, Mongeau and Owen. 
Close behind were Chapman, Williams and School House. 

This year there was an overwhelming number of entries 
with 81 in the senior division and 46 in the junior division, 
making a new record of 127 entries. 

In the junior section, Masterson I crossed the finish 
line closely followed by McEntyre and Coolican to take 
the Heneker Trophy, pacing the 3^ mile course in a 
time of 25:06 (Record 22.23). A well-combined K and H 
Dorm team triumphed to win the dormitory shield. 




Long hard weeks of afternoon workouts and early- 
morning training paid off for B.C.S. on May 24th, when 
for the fourth consecutive year the Track Team retained 
the Skinner Trophy, which is awarded to the team which 
obtains the highest total aggregate in the Eastern Town- 
ships Track Meet. 

This year the feat was accomplished by teamwork in 
every sense of the word, for the School collected none 
of the individual or class trophies. The spirit and unity 
of the team, however, gained seven first places, eight 
seconds, seven thirds, and twelve fourths, to gain a total 
of 85 points. 

Credit for this accomplishment is due to the excellent 
coaching of Mr. Abbott, and the fine captainship of 
Michael Alexander.

Since the Squash Courts were presented to the School, 
an ever increasing number of boys have become interested 
m the game. This year particularly a very large number of 
boys participated in the various tournaments held 
throughout the year. Many boys took up the game for 
the first time, and the general standard of play was 
unusually high. 

The first tournament of the year was a round-robin, 
with each of the competitors playing against all the 
others. There were thirty-two competitors and the 
leading places were hotly contested. The first ten, in 
order, were Hart II, Mitchell and Cushing, McLernon II, 
McLernon I, Khawam I, McNeill, Kyrtsis, Coburn, 

A second tournament was started in the Lent term, 
but, although it was split into two divisions to accommo- 
date the increased number of entrants, lack of time 
prevented it from being completed. 

In the third term the School Senior and Junior Elimina- 
tion Tournaments were held and again attracted large 
numbersof entrants. Khatami won the sen.or tournament 
after heating out Cushing and Byers, and McLernon II 
beat McEntyre to win the Junior Tournament 

It was unfortunate that the B.C.S. Invitation Tourna- 
ment had to be cancelled, but nevertheless this was a 
very successful year for squash, and thanks should be 
given to Mr. Greaves and Mr. Seager for organising the 
various tournaments.

The cricket season is a short one, and gives coaches and 
players very little time to get into their stride. Between 
the defeat of the snows and the onslaught of exams only 
the month of May is left for practice and matches. Thus 
it is virtually impossible to concentrate on the finer 
points of the game; all that can be done is to teach the 
essentials and hope that keenness and determination will 
do the rest. 

Very few of the boys have ever seen a first-class 
cricket match outside the school, but this year they have 
had the opportunity of watching several good games 
between the first XI and visiting teams. We have been 
fortunate in having in Khazzam an unusually fine cricketer 

who has been an inspiration not only to his own team 
but also to the younger, less experienced cricketers in 
the school. 

There are three stages in the life of a cricketer at B.C.S. 
First the compulsory New-Boy crease, where, often 
enough, the idiosyncracies and vicissitudes of the game 
are met for the first time, then the Under XVI, and 
eventually the first XI for final polish. 

This year the season has been a successful one, partic- 
ularly for the first team — and it is here, above all, that 
the efforts and enthusiasm of Mr. Pilgrim (a self-confessed 
"Canadian cricketer") have been evident and fruitful.

The team was well captained by Freeborough, and 
included several players of promise. In both matches 
against Ashbury the team played with great enthusiasm, 
and thoroughly deserved to win a very exciting first

Winner of Kenneth Hugessen Prize for Creative Writing 

The sandy haired boy, Frank Owen, picked a small 
pebble off the beach and threw it with all his strength 
against the side of a nearby boulder. The tiny missile 
careened off at a crazy angle and splashed into the sea. 

He had wanted to gather seashells for an exhibition on 
shore life which his scout patrol was going to give but 
he had forgotten the high tide which now covered the 
beach and the shells he had come to search for. A little 
annoyed with himself, he turned and ran back up the 
path toward home. 

After lunch, he hurried down to the beach again. The 
tide was out now. Then he began his quest for shells 
and small fish, searching by the rocks on the beach. The 
tide had uncovered many small species but the boy was a 
long time in finding anything unusual or even worthwhile. 
Soon he decided to move farther out in the hope of 
finding larger shells. At about four o'clock, the sky was 
growing cloudy and he decided to make the best of the 
failing light and move on. On coming to a large rock, he 
tipped it on end and noticed, in the pool beneath it, a 
tiny crab that continually opened and closed its pincers. 
He picked it up and noticed a mound shaped piece of 
shell beneath it. Putting the crab to one side he looked 
more closely. Hoping this might prove a good find, the 
boy scraped away the sand from around it and lifted it 
carefully out of the pool. It was a conch shell ! He mentally 
judged it was of perfect proportions, the large end 6" 
in diameter, tapering spirally to a smaller end, 10" away. 
It looked like the picture he had seen of a horn of plenty 
with many fruits of all sorts overflowing out of its large 
end. Suddenly he had a queer sensation of stillness around 
him and he looked up. A dense greyish fog was forming 
all around him on the beach. It had dropped down silently 
like a great blanket. Without fully realizing the danger 
confronting him, the boy began walking toward the shore, 
or at least in the direction where he thought it was. 
Then, quite suddenly, he came to water. 

Pulled, he started back toward the rock, noticing 
that now he could barely see his footsteps m the sand, 
let alone a few yards ahead of him. With a touch of fear, 
he sat down upon the rock and looked around him. Was 
the fog going to settle or would it blow away quickly? 
From the time of the year and his experiences at sea m 
his father's trawler, the boy guessed it would remain at 
least a day. The surrounding haze seemed to mock him. 
Then he thought he heard the beating of the surf and he 
decided to wait for the tide to come up and guide him in. 
For thirty long minutes the boy waited expectantly. At 
last he realized something was amiss and jerked himself 

to his feet. The tide should have been up to him by now 
and he felt a strange feeling of doubt building up in his 

Then, over the surf, he heard another sound. Again it 
came. If he could be sure it was a land noise, he could 
walk toward it and come eventually to the shore. Then 
it sounded again, like the whistle of a train. He started 
walking toward the sound but before many minutes had 
elapsed his feet felt water, which got slowly deeper and 
deeper the farther he walked on. Once back on dry sand, 
he realized he must be on an island. Slowly he retraced his 
footsteps to the rock. Then he heard a fog horn. It brought 
back memories to him of being with his father on the 
trawler. He silently contemplated fingering the tiller and 
basking on the deck in the warm summer sun during a 
calm. Then, again he heard the horn. He was about to 
shout for help when he realized that the men on the 
boat at sea would probably not hear him through the fog. 
Suddenly he remembered his books at home and how one 
had said that men had used conch shells for fog horns 
m the olden days. His heart thumping wildly, he groped 
for the shell in his knapsack. Would it work? Experimen- 
tally, he filled his lungs with air and blew into the shell, 
using the small end as a mouthpiece. It uttered a hissing 
noise. Then he pursed his lips and tried again. This time 
it responded wonderfully with a long hoot, filling the 
air with shuddering vibrations. An answering hoot was 
heard ! But the other boar was probably now travelling 
away so as to avoid him, thinking he was another boat. 
This would get him nowhere, he realised. 

His situation was desperate now. He could hear the 
lapping of the water ever closing the small ring it formed 
around the dry sand on which he stood. Soon the water 
would be around his ankes. Then he remembered his 
scout patrol and the Morse code he had once learned If 
he sent an S.O.S., surely the men in the other boats 
would recognize it. The boy began patiently to give his 
signal on the conch shell. It was tedious work and took a 
long time. He noticed that it was now growing quite 
dark and he wondered if the other boats were hearing 
him. Then the sky above him was illuminated as if by a 
flare and he knew that some boat had heard him. Suddenly 
he saw another light, a beam of orange at ground level 
and a little dory appeared, heading toward him He 
shouted to guide it in. 

As he scrambled over the gunwhale, a wave swept 
over the last of the dry sand , smoothing out his foot- 
prints and breaking over the conch shell which he had

"It took three side-flips, a half turn, rolled on its back, 
and dropped dead." This was the excited description of 
a young chemist of actual practice to prove that carbon 
monoxide will really kill a living animal and that all the 
stories he had seen in the movies of people suffocating 
in their cars had not been invented by Mickey Spillane. 
But what must the mice feel about this unstable day-to- 
day existence which they lead? Probably it is as Ulysses 1 
men felt when the Cyclops began to devour them one 
by one. What if, as Ulysses' men, they succeeded in 
freeing themselves and became our masters? Are we 
men or mice? 

Though no relation to the mice family, which they 
haughtily thank their lucky stars for, the dog race is 
finding itself in somewhat the same predicament in 
groping into the unkown, not to Animal Heaven perhaps, 
but to outer space. The Russian hound is calmly minding 
his own business, guarding the 'volunteer 1 camps in 
Siberia, when out of the red sunset he discovers himself 
on an all-expenses-paid trip around the world. Un- 
fortunately he never stays in one place a sufficient length 
of time to enjoy the scenery and finds, much to his 
annoyance, that it is becoming very stuffy inside the 
rocket as time goes on. 

If the mice and dogs think they have it rough, the 
guinea pig claims he would trade positions with any of 
them, but it had better be soon or he might not be able to, 
due to circumstances beyond his control. This guinea 
pig has seen more bacteria than a dog has fleas. However, 
it is his social life which is continually interrupted by 
someone injecting a new disease into him. Cancer, 
tuberculosis, pneumonia, malaria — you name it, he has 
had it. After a while his resistance to a common cold 
is not worth a plugged guinea. 

The beasts of the farm have as much of a promising 
future as a Christian facing the lions in the forum had. 
Why, the other day a sow grunted that the farmers were 
making pigs of themselves, seising so many of her young 
for the slaughter house. 

By no means is this article inspired by the Vegetarian 
or Anti-Carnivorous Society of the World. On the 
contrary. In the beginning of time man was ordained to 
hold sway over beasts and they have become essential to 
his existence unless we wish to blossom along with the 
rosebuds in the spring. The animals have their place in 
life, along with everything else, and their destiny lies at 

the feet of man .Who wishes it otherwise? This is not 
for us to alter. 

We are not composed necessarily of the cold-blooded 
and cruel substance, but rather of the realistic and 
practical, and are not among the dreamers. Perhaps some 
of these modern 'humanists' hope for the rise of the 
animals to the position which they held (but did not 
enjoy) in George Orwell's 'Animal Farm.' Perhaps others 
dread the thought. But this is of the fantastic, in the 
true sense of the word. 

Mice, as all other animals, live by the uncivilised 
dogma of eat or be eaten; certainly uncivilised they are, 
as this is the distinction between men and mice. The 
mouse eats the frog and the cat eats the mouse. The 
leopard eats the cat and so the cycle continues. Their 
world is apart from ours, and who are mortals to interfere 
m the existence of creatures which, generally speaking, 
we know little about? How do we know this is not the 
way they want it? Are not we playing the role of the 
village busy-body? 

The mice live lives which on the average are of a 
shorter duration than human spans. They die by a natural 
death or by accident or by a premeditated murder. Is 
that not the path our life follows? The mouse cannot 
live forever and, like the majority of humans, really 
does not want to either. 

All things must have a purpose. What is that of the 
mouse, if he lacks the power to reason, to construct, if 
it be not to further man's interests which are already 
fore-ordained? There is no fault in sending a dog into 
outer space, even if it is to die. Which of you volunteer 
to take its place? The guinea pig, which has often been 
replaced by a mouse, has saved countless human lives 
in the field of medicine alone. 

This does not suggest that all cats should be carried 
around by their tails, all dogs should be kicked, and all 
horses whipped. Far from it, but there must be a distinc- 
tion between this outright cruelty and that necessity. 

To those kind-hearted, but impractical people, who 
gave vent to a storm of protest against the use of animals 
in scientific experiment and medicine, it is suggested that 
they return to reality and direct their sympathy where 
it will do some good and be in its proper perspective, to 
the doping of race-horses for one instance. Let us distin- 
guish between men and mice.

provide each boy with something to take his mind off 
his work. Every other Saturday morning a boy is told 
what colour he is. He can be : A[o Colour — This is the 
same as protective coloration in Nature, and means that, 
like a rabbit, partridge, or chameleon, the boy has 
blended into his background m the classroom, and 
remained unnoticed. Off Colour — In this case he 
should report to the Infirmary. White — This means 
he has gone pale becuase some master has noticed him in 
class. Blue — This means that one master has it in for 
him, and he is to be depressed till Monday morning. 
Yellow— This means that two masters take a jaundiced 
view of his work. Red— This means that three masters 
are positively embarrassed by his results. Blac\— This 
means that his work is so bad that at least four masters 
want to have nothing more to do with it, so he is gated, 
detained, un-bisqued, and remediated to such an 
extent that he cannot do any work at all.

Winning Essay in Sherbroo\e Youth Festival Literature Contest 

As I walk among the great pine trees, the frozen limbs 
of birch trees, and the brush, I hear a noise that one 
cannot explain. It is a thrilling noise, and it inspires 
me as music does. The glittering twigs are frozen with 
a thick coating of ice, and when the wind blows they 
squeak and whine. The winter wind howls like the 
brass section in an orchestra, and the house shakes as 
the tune reaches its crescendo. The soft, tinkling sleigh- 
bells serve as castanets, and the drums of hooves can 
be faintly heard in the distance. The music is alive and 
brisk like the weather that brings it. Everything in 
winter is happy and joyous, and even the worst blizzard 
can be enjoyed when one is beside the warm fireplace 
beneath its singing chimney. 

Winter dies and turns to spring as a leaf dies and falls 
from a tree. Spring is like rush hour. Snow melts and 
trickles musically down the sides of country roads. 
Babbling over each rock, playing its sharps and flats, the 
water flows to a level space. There is a diminuendo. 
Finally, when it reaches the roaring, flooded river, it has 
reached its crescendo. The early bird, looking for its 
worm, wakens us to its sweet song. The crow returns, 
and adds his call to the harmony of the skies. When the 
sun shines we hear the sound of the melted snow dripping 
on the tin roofs; every place gives forth a different sound, 
depending on the altitude from which the melted crystals 
drop, and the material on which they land. The ram 

may sound the same, but when it comes down heavily 
the falling water makes the sound of bongo or kettle 
drums. As the ram ceases the sun comes out and every- 
thing is fresh and alive. Spring is the time of year with 
the most energy, and it shows this by the sun shining on 
melting snow, and the water dripping with the sounds 
of stringed instruments. 

The summer arrives, and the warm breezes sway the 
gentle tree-tops. We are m the midst of the concert now. 
All is warmed up and moving smoothly. The lake 
glistening in the sunlight and glinting in the moonlight 
suggests the two extremes of volume. The crickets chirp 
till late in the night, and the dew covers the lawns in 
the morning. The volume of the music rises with the sun, 
reaching its height at noon, and fading in the evening 
until at night only the flutes of the frogs and the clarinets 
of the crickets can be heard in the moonlight. 

The autumn, as I see it, is the last season of the year. 
The music picks up and the concert gives a final burst. 
The birds fly south and make musical scores in the sky. 
When the falling leaves, rustling on the ground, are 
caught in a gust of wind, the music becomes rougher. All 
grows louder as the November winds blow the leaves into 
their finale. The lights dim in the hall as the days grow 
shorter, and finally the curtain of snow falls to hide for a 
time the musicians and their instruments.

I feel there is nothing more thrilling than going down- 
hill on skis. On the brow of the hill, the brisk air stings 
your nostrils and fills your lungs with its freshness. The 
blue sky is rich and dark and the sun's rays on the 
glistening snow cause you to squint as you peer down the 

With enthusiastic effort your ski poles strike the snow 
and start your never-to-be-forgotten descent. Slowly at 
first, your skis cut a clear trail in the fresh powder snow 
as their tips part the flawless cover of white that lies 
before you. Your speed increases and you, can feel the 
thrill building up inside you as you realize that your skis 
are your slaves, and will go where you direct them. With 
the increased speed, you feel yourself ready for a turn — 
not a check, but a sweeping turn to add to the enjoyment. 

Without any hesitation you are prepared. An increase 
of pressure on the uphill side of your skis and you are 
ready. Down, into your turn, up and out, and pride 
simply swells within you as you look over your shoulder 
with satisfaction at the result. Behind you, the snow has 
swooshed up into a fluffy screen of flakes, which seems 
to stay suspended for a split second, and then to fall 

lightly on the irregular slash your skis have made in the 

Ahead of you, there is a slight ripple in the surface 
of this snow-covered paradise, and instinctively the 
muscles of your legs tense lightly m preparation. With the 
minbleness of a young doe, your skis streak gracefully 
over the bumps, while your body's rhythmical co- 
ordination absorbs the bumps as if they were not there. 

Once more, you find yourself sweeping through another 
satisfying turn and plunging yourself into a steep schuss. 
With speed that you never thought possible, the snow 
skims by your feet, and your skis just barely seem to 
stay on the ground. Tears stream off your face as the 
wind, trying to hold you back, fails and sweeps by you. 

Finally as you near the bottom all your resources are 
prepared for the last movement of this concerto on the 
snow. With a finishing touch, so to speak, your descent 
is at an end m a flurry of snow as your skis respond to 
your will. 

The ultimate note of pleasure comes when you look 
back up the snowy slope and see the symphony of < 
descent scored on the glittering manuscript.

A Finnish national trait is cleanliness and this is 
achieved by the sauna, which refers to the bath itself 
(above right) and to the building in which it is taken 
(above left). It is a steam bath, much like a Turkish bath 
with the exception that the heat in the sauna is dry and 
the heat in the Turkish bath is moist. 

In Finland, there is one sauna to every three people, 
according to a recent census. It is usually situated about 
25 yards from the main house. The sauna consists of a 
dressing room and a bathing room. Inside the bathing 
room there is a furnace (at right, out of picture) which is 
heated so that stones surrounding it become red hot and 
the temperature in the room is well over the boiling point. 

The principle of the sauna is cleansing by perspiration. 
Once you enter the sauna room, you sit on the benches 
and pour water onto the stones, thus producing steam. 
The steam is relatively dry as the moisture is absorbed 
by the surrounding wooden structure. While the heat 
strikes the body like hot darts, you whisk yourself with 
a bundle of birch leaves, as shown, dipped first in water, 
which further opens the pores. This action makes the 
skin tingle. 

The moment of supreme enjoyment arrives when, 
after coming out of the sauna, you roll in the snow, or, 
in summer, jump in the lake.

It started with droning of motors. The boys in "A" 
Dorm who happened to be awake heard it; Fletcher 
started talking in his sleep. 

Cadet Major Leatherlungs heard it, and stopped 
snoring. Every master, early risers to a man, heard it, 
and looked at his ceiling, wondering. Was it a dormitory 
riot, or was it aeroplane engines? 

Soon the droning and the planes were gone. Fletcher 
stopped swearing in his sleep, Leatherlungs started 
snoring again, and the masters relapsed into stupor. 

Suddenly the phone rang in the Cadet Instructor's 
house, stopping him as he was on his way out to do a 
little early morning varmint shooting. The message 
changed his plans, and the routine of the whole School. 

At 5.30 the bell rang in the School House. The boys 
rolled out of bed, making the usual comments. Jessop 
staggered to the window for air, and suddenly realized 
to his horror that it was still dark outside. 

By six o'clock the boys were at breakfast, dressed 
in their blue cadet uniforms. Goodfellow poured coffee 

on his cereal, and sat eating it with a fork. Harris dimly 
realized that he had his shoes on the wrong feet, and 
tried to change them under the table, sticking his nose 
in the butter. Monk dropped his glasses in the porridge, 
and chewed and swallowed them without surprise. 
Cooper leaned on his elbow, which was in the bacon 
platter, and went to sleep. 

At 6.30 all were ordered to the locker room, told to 
shine their brass and boots, and whiten the web belts 
of the band, and then to fall in, in the gym. By 7 o'clock 
the platoons were formed up, but for a gap in the rear 
rank of Number Three, where Frost was snoozing on 
the floor. 

By 7-15 the corps was marching down the road to 
the Long Bridge, carrying Frost, who refused to awaken, 
in a stretcher. 

When they reached the bridge, the corps was deployed 
in a wide semi-circle guarding its southern end. Noticing 
something in a patch of bushes by the river, Cadet Major 
Leatherlungs held a hurried conference with Lieutenant 



Muchmell and Sergeant Redwalk. The word 'infiltration' 
was overheard. 

"Number Three Platoon!" bellowed Leatherlungs in 
typical manner. "Line up facing the river. Load one 
round and await orders." 

For a moment there was silence, but for a slight 
rustling from the bushes. Twenty-one bolts clicked back, 
and then forward again. 

There was a sound like a snicker from the bushes. 

"Fire!" bellowed Leatherlungs. Twenty-one bullets 
crashed out of the rifles and sped in the general direction 
of the bushes. Muddy St. Francis water splashed into 
miniature waterspouts, and dust and pebbles jumped on 
the ground. "Take that, you foul Fenian!" cried Leather- 

There was a thrashing and grunting in the bushes, 
and, with a choking "Moo" a large brown cow waddled 
out of the thicket. She ga?ed around, and then stared 
unbelievingly at the third platoon. Then, with a horribly 
contorted face and a hysterical cry, she collapsed in a 
grotesque heap. 

In Ottawa, a week later, a paunchy colonel was reading 
a report. He paused, and then reread more slowly the 
section headed 'Remarks. 1 

In a neat schoolboy hand was written: 'The cow, it 
turned out, was unwounded. The local veterinary 
surgeon diagnosed her death as caused by a heart attack 
brought on by a fit of laughter/

Since half the Prep was new boys and most of the 
masters too, the beginning of the year for the first week 
or two was rather hard but, by the effort of Colonel 
Brine, we got off to a good start. Unfortunately sickness 
and accidents soon caught up with us with a 'flu epidemic, 
two people with water on the knee, one appendicitis, 
and other things but, otherwise, it has been a quite 
enjoyable year. 

A full slate of sports activities kept us all busy in our 
'spare 1 time and these are reported under their own 
headings. The Choir after long preparation put on a 

production of "The Mikado" which was considered 
excellent. The Prep magazine was produced again after 
a lapse of nearly six years and it is hoped that future 
members of the Prep will keep this publication going. 
The Choir has recently made a visit to Montreal and 
sang Matins in the church of St. James the Apostle. At 
the time of writing we are awaiting a busy week-end with 
the Cadet Inspection and the annual cricket games 
between the Mothers and 2nd XI and the Fathers and 
1st team. Soon we will be starting the end of year exams 
and the long summer holidays will be upon us.

Never before in the history of B.C.S. has it ever been 
so bad! The Matrons and Masters have never been so 
worried ! Luckily they managed to keep the school going 
while some of the other schools closed. 

This Asiatic 'flu lasted for over three weeks and caused 
great confusion. Over one hundred boys were affected, 
so accommodations for sick boys were very difficult. In 
the Upper School two or three dorms were evacuated to 
room the sick boys. In the Prep Miss Reyner very 
willingly tended the sick in the Common Room; she 

gave us lots of orange juice and pills. Some of the conva- 
lescents were allowed to watch the world series on T-V. 
Quite a lot of outside help was needed so they managed 
to get some nurses who usually work at the Sherbrooke 
Hospital. Some of the Prep boys had to go to the Upper 
School because there wasn't enough room in the Prep. 
When the 'flu was over the people who stayed in the 
Common Room bought Miss Reyner a present for taking 
care of them. When it was all over it was kind of hard 
getting back to routine. M. Rowat

The play on the whole was a great success. The name 
of it was "Who Gets the Car To-night?" The stars were 
Peter Crawford as father, Ian Rankin as mother and Colin 
McLernon and Kirk MacCulloch as their children and 
Moyle as boy friend. For the most part it was the first 
time they had ever acted on stage with a large audience. 
Mr. Williams was supervisor, director and producer of 
the play while Mr. Ferris handled the stage problems. 

The boys practised the play amost every night for a 
week or two but didn't see the stage until the night of 
the play. The play was quite long so they each had 
quite a few lines to learn and remember. The costumes 
were well thought up and most of the parts fitted the 
person in real life. The play was very humorous and 
everyone who watched it got a good laugh.

This year has seen many excursions and with these 
excursions many mishaps. During soccer trips taxis 
went to wrong stations and people forgot bags here, there 
and everywhere. On one hockey trip a pair of pants was 
left behind, and a taxi crashed on the return. A pair of 
skates forgotten required another taxi ride. . .all these 
things add up to normal Prep life. Here follow reports 
on our most adventurous trips. 


Bury ls about twenty miles from B.C.S. On a nice 
day it is a pleasant drive but if you are going up 
hill m a freak snow storm it isn't quite so pleasant This 
happened when a selected group of forty boys set out in 
November to sing an evening service at Bury We 
staunchly hacked our way through the bli^ard as far as 
Cookshire. Cookshire is a nice town except for two 
reasons-two hills, one going down and one going up 



As we fought our way gallantly to the top of Cookshire 
hill we became aware that a few cars could not make it. 
And when we arrived at Bury we counted ourselves and 
discovered to our great surprise that we numbered only 
eleven. After an hour and a half of waiting in the base' 
ment of the church we decided to go and smg the service. 
The story of those who did not turn up is being told by 
one of them : 

We found at Cookshire that neither Mr. Wilson's 
car nor Mr. Forster's could get up the hill. The Rev. Mr. 
Forster is a very good natured man who meets every 
difficulty with his well known ruler "Excalibur." How' 
ever, this was just one of those exceptions which cannot 
be excepted. Finally we thought it better to stay put 
between two hills. Then after a brief conference we made 
a run at the hill and — whew — we made it! We arrived 
back at the Prep and some two hours later the boys who 
had reached Bury returned, full of praise for the minister 
who had preached a sermon about them, and the congrega- 
tion who had waited for an hour and a half to hear them. 

H. M. Hicks 
P. Dawes 


Following the unsuccessful Bury trip the Choir took a 
bus to Drummondville. But we found that Bury was not 
the end of our troubles. The service got underway 
nicely but after a short time the power suddenly went 
off; this of course caused the organ to fail. Mr. Forster 
could not do anything until he found a tuning fork; by 
some sixth sense he had put one into his pocket the night 
before. As the service was in several different keys Mr. 
Forster had to figure very carefully the note and sing it 
to start off the hymn. With the help of the tuning fork, 
Mr. Forster's solos, and the concentration of the choir 
the singing was kept up well. Also of course the stained 
glass did not let in much light and the rector had trouble 
reading the lesson. 

However, the magnificent lunch served us afterwards 
made up for all our worries (and Mr. Forster's loss of 
weight) and congratulations indicated that our trip had 
been a success.

On Thursday February 20th, the Prep went to Hill- an excellent day for skiing and luckily no one forgot his 

crest for the day, leaving about 9.30 in two buses. It was 


As the Prep School, boys and staff and Mr. H. Hall 
of the Upper School, filed into the Auditorium, appro- 
priate piano selections, played by Mrs. R. Bell, gave a 
spirited start to the annual French Programme presented 
on May 3. And for the duration of the proceedings, the 
Prep gave evidence of its ability to be bilingual and of 
the patient efforts that Mrs. R. Smith must have given 
to achieve results so pleasing and splendid. 

Hicks, as Chairman, opened the programme by wel- 
coming those present and calling on the School to sing 
"Aupres de ma Blonde." Fine pronunciation and good 
diction in the rendering of this song by over 40 boys were 
clearly detected, pointing to the success that Mrs. Smith 
achieved in having such a large group of boys not only 
sing a song, but in French and with vigour, and compre- 
hension of what they were singing. Then followed four 
speakers, all of them good, whom Mr. Hall judged for 
fluency, pronunciation, material and its presentation. 
1st prise was awarded to Dawes for his speech. "The 
value of being bilingual"; 2nd prize to Rowat for his 
topic, "Stamp collecting"; 3rd prize to Carter for his 
talk on "Quebec City"; and 4th prize to Mitchell for his 
views on "The advantages of being at B.C.S." A special 
prize was awarded to Hicks, and deservedly earned, for 
the excellent progress he has made in the one year he 


has been at the School, his command and fluency of the 
language during the programme being much in evidence, 
further pointing out what Mrs. Smith is able to accom- 
plish in one year for a boy who had little or no French 
when entering the School. 

Next on the programme was a short play in three 
scenes, "Au Magasin," depicting the trials of a mother 
and father taking their children shopping. Those taking 
part were : Bellm, Moyle, Lubecki, Cook, Trafford, Fertig, 
Masterson, and Cochand. The hearty laughter of the 
audience evoked by the dialogue, actions and costumes 
of the players, proved again that Mrs. Smith's efforts 
were fully appreciated. 

Col. Brine was then asked by the Chairman to say 
a few words, in French, emphasis being placed on "a 
few words," the boys eagerly and evidently waiting for — 
Well, the Colonel neatly turned the tables and in a few 
words unmistakably French, pointed to himself as a 
good example of not being as bilingual as he would like 
to be. 

The programme concluded with Mr. Hall thanking 
Col. Brine for inviting him to take part in the proceedings 
and heartly congratulating Mrs. Smith for arranging such a 
varied programme and for achieving such splendid results.

SOCCER 1957 

Despite the epidemic of influenza that swept the school, 
the soccer season was reasonably successful. The Prep 
team retained The Wanstall Cup by defeating Selwyn 
House School both at home and in Montreal. 

At the conclusion of the soccer series the boys were 
awarded their colours which were presented to them by 
the Headmaster at a Prep Assembly. Colonel Brine 
commended the team on retaining the cup. The following 
boys received half-colours: Brown, Macpherson, 
Crawford, Kingston, Davies and McLernon. 

Full colours were awarded to the following: 

Mitchell: (Captain) Right Inside. A fast player and 
a good scorer. 

Abbott: Right outside. Very quick and quite tricky. 
He and Mitchell evolved a marvellous system of com- 

Hutchins: Right full back. A brilliant defenceman 
who was a great asset to the team. 

Bellm: Left full back. Slow and steady seemed to be 
his motto. He seldom missed the ball. 

Fox: Centre Half-back. A star player with the knack 
of causing the ball to drop right into the opponents' 
goal area.

HOCKEY 1958 

From early November 1957 until March 1958 the 
Prep hockey teams were kept fully employed. In addition 
to the Prep First Team which is open to all Prep boys and 
which plays matches against Lower Canada College, 
Selwyn House and Stanstead College, the boys are divided 
into three teams, one Bantam and two Pee Wee all playing 
in the Sherbrooke division of the Q.M.A.H.A. 

The first team had a satisfactory season with a record of 
four wins, one loss and a tie. This was not sufficiently 
good to regain the Adelard Raymond Trophy— a matter 
which must remain m abeyance another year — but the 
competition produced a very high standard of hockey. 

The Senecas being in the lower age bracket of the 

Bantam division, coached by Mr. Hunt, did remarkably 
well to come third in their division. 

The Iroquois, the top group m the PeeWee, again 
managed to capture the Eastern Townships Champion- 
ship and it is sincerely hoped that never again will such 
a muddled schedule for the semi-finals be arranged which 
eventually resulted m Official and Unofficial champions 
being declared, the two teams so proclaimed never 
having the opportunity to meet each other! The Micmacs 
could be called a farm team for next year's Iroquois and 
coached by Mr. Williams, improved amazingly during 
the season. 


This year for the first time a match took place against 
Lower Canada College. The challengers sent down a 
superb team against which we fared even worse that we 
had expected; our best section being the Cross Country 
where we had two in the first six. Cochand, our only 
skier with competition experience, coped with the 
slalom m particular in fine style, and reasonable perform- 
ances were forthcoming from Trafford and Russel. All 

the members of the team, however, must indeed be com- 
mended for thoroughly courageous efforts throughout 

I Ttu T b f 284 P ° mtS We comforted °^lves 
that Sedburgh, a skiing school, had gone down almost as 

heavily before this team and (granted enthusiasm and 

more concentrated practice) we hope our venture into 

competitive skiing will be better rewarded next year

CRICKET - 1958 

This year's matches have been conspicuous for the 
individual efforts of a few. Inevitably the nucleus of the 
XI was the three remaining colours of last year and they 
have been relied upon in all our matches to date. 

At Ashbury, early in the term, our victory by 72 
runs was almost entirely the work of Mitchell who 
scored 50 not out, including a straight six and some 
memorable square cuts, and also took seven wickets for 
two runs. Against the Fathers, Mitchell came up with 
another first class innings of 45 not out, and he and 
Brown took four wickets apiece; this match was won by 
nine wickets. In the most recent match, against Sedbergh, 
when Mitchell was dismissed early, Abbott took over as 
mainstay of the batting with a classic style, especially on 
the off, and a score of 40 runs before he was brilliantly 
caught by Robson of Sedbergh. He was tenaciously 
supported by our Captain, Brown, m a partnership of 
64, Brown making 27 runs with frightening but effective 

sweeps to leg. We won this match by 65 runs, Brown and 
Mitchell again sharing the bowling honours. The bowling 
averages of these two now stand at 4.1 and 2.5 respec- 
tively and Mitchell has a batting average of 48. 

We have one match left to play, that against Ashbury 
in a return game at B.C.S. on 31st May. This year for the 
first time Ashbury and B.C.S. are competing for a 
trophy kindly presented for inter-school competition at 
Prep level by Mr. L. M. Hart. 

Without the three old colours the XI could show little 
attack either batting or bowling, despite encouraging 
elements of good style. And although McLernon behind 
the stumps has coped quite admirably with the not 
infrequent wildness of the fast bowlers, the fielding on 
the whole has not been remarkable for its safeness. 
Nevertheless the cricket has been attractive and the 
victories convincing; it is hard to imagine that next year's 
team will be able to match the standard of the 1958 XI.

I have enjoyed my stay in the Prep very much and feel 
that I owe a great deal to it. It has not only guided and 
cultured my mind in the right direction but it has helped 
me to mix with other boys and experience what it is to 
be first of all in the lowest form and then over the years 
to have worked up to the top form of the Prep. 

I have learnt many things especially in the field of 
sports; the various masters taught me how to play the 

several games and how to win and lose. All these things 
have I learnt in my stay in the happy community of the 
Prep. The Prep drove out of me the idea that I was the 
only person who mattered, and taught me that other 
people were just as or more important than 1. 1 am greatly 
indebted to the Prep and I sincerely hope that the things 
I have learnt here I may take on with me in all that lies

The hunt got off to a roaring start 
So did the dogs with their howl and bark. 
The mounted riders they rode so fast 
Chasing the fox to the very last. 

Over the fence where the green grass grows, 
Into the green woods and into the meadows, 
Down the trail they ride and ride 
Over a river to the other side. 

The fox runs faster and faster still 
Passing the wheel of the quaint old mill. 
The dogs are running as fast as can be 
The faces of riders are filled with glee. 

But when they come where the rivers cross 
The fox is stunned : he's at a loss. 
The dogs move on their frightened prey 
And the hunt is through 'til another day.

When I was a boy I lived in Moscow, Russia. My Dad 
was a foreign correspondent for the New York Times. His 
work had taken us to most of the European countries. 

I had a dog who became very famous. His name was 
"King." He was no special kind but I loved him all the 
same. We picked him up in London for a few shillings. 
On Saturday morning I decided that King and I would 
go over to see a band of gypsies who were camped in a 
nearby field. When I arrived the Gypsies, or most of 
them, were sitting around a fire and one girl was doing 
a wild gypsy dance. She turned round and round, jumping 
and bending faster than I had ever seen anyone do m 
my life. Just then some Russian soldiers came marching 
through the soggy fields. I supposed that they were doing 
one of their usual training marches. However, when they 
saw the gypsies they yelled at them; being so far away 

I couldn't make out their words but they did sound as 
if they meant business. You'd never believe it but the 
next minute a shot rang out and I realised I should get 
out of there fast. As I started to go I noticed that King 
had turned towards the fire. 

The bullet from the Russian gun hit the dancer in the 
shoulder and she had fallen across the fire and King was 
back there trying to drag her away, but before he could 
get her away a second shot was fired and hit King in the 
leg. Seeing King hurt I ran out to get him. Well, of course 
you remember the International incident that that caused. 
It was all in the papers about how the Russians had 
shot me, a young Canadian boy, and it came out at that 
time how my dog had tried to save the young gypsy. I'm 
sure you remember who she was, the great-grandaughter 
of the former Czar of Russia.

It happened one night just before the final game of 
the hockey season to see who would win the Stanley 
Cup. The game was between the Canadiens and the 
Boston Bruins. About half an hour before the game the 
telephone rang and my mother answered it. After a 
few minutes she came back and announced solemnly that 
one of my father's business deals which cost him a lot 
of money had gone wrong, she also added that if they 
stayed here the man who phoned would also phone 
again in the next few hours to keep my father up to date. 
Father then turned to me and said that we could not 
go to the game and that I should go to bed. I tried to 
protest but they just would not let me go to the game 
alone nor stay up any later. 

I then went up to my room in a sulky mood wishing 
to myself that the man on the other end of the phone 

was dead, the factory was burned down, and, most of 
all, my parents would take me to the hockey game. It 
was then that I got the notion to run away so I ran 
upstairs, threw some things in a towel including food from 
the kitchen and some clothes. I was half way down the 
stairs when I heard the telephone ring and then heard 
my father answer it. I stayed on the stairs until I heard 
the receiver click into place and my mother and father 
exchange words which I could not quite make out. Then 
my mother came running upstairs and we almost collided. 
She told me everything was all right and the business 
deal went through and we could go to the game. But in 
all her excitement she did not notice the bundle and 
therefore neither she nor my father knew what I was 
going to do that night.

There once lived a man called Mr. Brant. He was in 
his fifties, about 6 ft., blackish-white hair, blue eyes and 
had a good sense of humour. He had retired from a news- 
paper company because of illness. His doctor told him 
to go to the country and have a rest. So he packed and 
started out for the country. He was half-way there 
when his car stalled. He got out and looked around for a 
house but could not find one. So he walked up the street 
and saw a house. He knocked at the door and an old 
woman answered. She had white hair, a long nose and a 
pair of glasses and a spooky face. Mr. Brant asked if he 
could sleep there for the night. The lady (who was Miss 
Peach) said "yes" and showed him to a room. Having no 
pajamas he took off his jacket, tie and shoes and then got 
into bed. In about two minutes the bed caved in, Mr. 

Brant jumped out. He looked around for somewhere else 
to sleep, then he spotted the bath tub. He took the blanket 
and pillow off the bed and put them in the bath and got 
in himself. In about an hour's time he heard the door 
open slowly, then the lights flicker on and off; there was a 
scream, the water went on in the sink and the bath, then 
all was still. 

After minutes of silence the bathroom roof fell right 
through on top of Mr. Brant's head. He was furious. 
Jumping out of the bath he ran downstairs and saw 
someone just go out of the door. He ran after the person, 
jumped on him and punched him six times and threw him 
over his shoulder. Just then a police car drove up and 
took the man. Mr. Brant, forgetting about what the 
doctor said, died the minute the police car drove away.

Some birds sing a strain in joy 
Others a song of sorrow. 
One is merry : the other sad 
Yet neither heeds the morrow. 

Each strikes a poise of beauty 
Within its range of feeling. 
One is merry : the other sad 
Yet neither is revealing. 

Each bird sings quite differently 
Unmmded of the weather. 
One is merry: the other sad 
Yet both must live together.

Again, at the close of another School year, the Directors 
of the Old Boys' Association wish to thank all Old Boys 
for their loyal and generous support during the year. 

To the retiring President, Peter McEntyre ('27-'35), 
who has held this position for the past three years, we 
express our appreciation of his furthering so effectively 
the aims and ideals for which the Association stands. That 
it is in such fine shape is a result of the leadership he 
gave during his tenure of office. 

To our new President, Jack Cross ('27-'35), we extend 
every best wish, knowing that the qualities of leadership 
associated with his name are bound to enhance further 
the position of the Association. 

The annual Meeting and Dinner of the Old Boys' 
Association took place at the Montreal Club on February 
6th. Seated at the head table were: The newly-elected 
President, J. Cross ('27-'35); Mr. Justice Mackmnon 
C92-'96); The Headmaster ('28-'32); T. H. P. Molson 
Cl6-'18); R. R. McLernon ('26-'30); C. M. Drury 
('25- '29); V. Whitehead ('08-'14). 

In the absence of Mr. Justic Mitchell ('16-'19; '23- 
'26), the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors, R. R. 
McLernon ('26-'30), spoke of the needs of extra buildings 
at the School and named the Funds Committee for the 
Campaign to be undertaken. Chairman is to be T. H. P. 
Molson, President, C. M. Drury and Deputy, A. Penhale, 
Esq., of Thetford Mines. 

The guest speaker of the evening was the Headmaster 
who made a resume of the work and activities of the 
School during the past year, and then outlined the need 
for additional buildings. Inviting questions from Old 
Boys in the audience, he then answered several that were 
asked on present and future trends in education and how 
B.C.S. was faring, pointing out that B.C.S. students had 
led or tied for the leadership, in the matter of First 
Class and Distinctions in both the Senior and Junior
